PRESS WINS GOLDEN BALL AS USWNT QUALIFIES FOR TOKYO!
It was a great weekend for Slammers alumni and current USWNT forward Christen Press and her US team mates. After sealing a 3-0 win over Canada which meant the US also qualified for the 2020 Olympics, Christen was then awarded the CONCACAF Golden Ball. This is the award for best overall player in the qualifying campaign.
It was a great end to the weekend for Christen, who was able to celebrate all this back home in Southern Cal. Angelina Rivas, from the G2003 LAFC Slammers team, was also lucky to be able to share this moment with her. Angelina is pictured below with Christen’s Dad, Cody Press, and the golden ball trophy. Christen and her whole family have always shown appreciation to the next generation of Slammers players and this is another example of this.
